Work to shut down bridge
A recent traffic accident left the Winfield Bridge damaged, and crews are planning to shut that down at night over the next few weeks for repairs. The bridge will close every night this week through Thursday, from 6pm to 6am. The same thing will happen between July 23 and July 27, and again between July 30 and August 3. The state Division of Highways recommends an alternate route while the work is going on to avoid delays. Good news for Putnam County fair goers though...the bridge will not be closed the week of July 16 through 20.
